3 The West Lothian Context West Lothian Council is committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for children and young people so that they have the best start in life and are ready to succeed by following the principles of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) and Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC). Within Curriculum for Excellence, every child and young person is entitled to experience a curriculum which is coherent from Those planning the curriculum have a responsibility to work in partnership with others to enable children and young people to move smoothly between key transition points, building on prior learning and achievement in a manner appropriate to the learning needs of the individual. This should ensure that young people are well placed to move into positive destinations and adult life. The Corporate Plan sets the strategic direction and our priorities for West Lothian Council. There are eight priorities that we, and our community, believe can make a lasting and sustainable impact on the local area and improve the lives of residents in West Lothian. Priority 1: Delivering positive outcomes and early interventions for early years Priority 2: Improving the employment position in West Lothian Priority 3: Improving attainment and positive destinations for school children Priority 4: Improving the quality of life for older people Priority 5: Minimising poverty, the cycle of deprivation and promoting equality Priority 6: Reducing crime and improving community safety Priority 7: Delivering positive outcomes on health Priority 8: Protecting the built and natural environment The Corporate Plan informs Education Services Management Plan to ensure our work impacts positively on services for children and young people. Education Services focuses particularly on priorities 1, 2 and 3. Education Services Management Plan Education Services works towards achieving the key strategic aims of the council, in partnership with schools. In particular, Education Services aims to improve opportunities for children and young people by: Raising standards of attainment and achievement Improving employability and positive destinations for all school leavers Improving the learning environment Promoting equality of access to education Developing values and citizenship Promoting learning for life and encouraging a creative, enterprising and ambitious outlook.

9 Priority: Raising Attainment Area for Development 1: Pupil skills, confidence and attainment in maths and numeracy improve at all levels and embed Stages of Early Arithmetical Learning (SEAL). School s current position: Overall, attainment in mathematics by the end of 2 nd level is variable and ranges from good to very good. The quality of learning and teaching across the school is of a high standard but staff appreciate the need for continuous improvement through progression and pace and challenge. All teachers are now SEAL trained and will now implement the teaching strategies acquired. We need to ensure that children are taught and have more opportunities to develop a range of numeracy strategies which will impact on all maths learning.

Use adaptive testing data alongside other assessment information, including professional judgement, to assess key strengths and inform next steps in the teaching and learning of maths Devise, adopt and agree a timetable and action plan for self- evaluation Develop VSE approaches to improve learning and teaching in maths e.g. Whole Staff HT Whole Staff Whole Staff Whole Staff EO Maths DO HT CT from cluster schools August 2015 onwards See CLPL calendar- 3 sessions September 2015 August 2015 Termly September/ May CAT session Cluster Sessions CAT WTA CAT SMT/CT Staff feedback HTs cluster Whole staff EO/HT/ CT/ N officer/cluster staff DATA LABEL-PUBLIC 9
